the last time i saw her, she said to me...

I never thought it would come to this,
That I would ever get so confused or so old,
Dying amongst strangers; homeless.

Oh, how can I stand this loneliness?
I was always timid, never bold.
I never thought it would come to this,

Left in the care of the careless -
But I don't blame them for the cold.
Dying amongst strangers; homeless.

It's a dark night, tonight, so starless
That I think my death is there foretold -
I never thought it would come to this.

And when you leave me, you leave me voiceless,
Living my greatest fear, never to be told -
Dying amongst strangers; homeless.

So will you visit me still, when I'm lifeless,
Separated from you by death's threshold?
I never thought it would come to this -
Dying amongst strangers; homeless.
